• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Each time I use my sentinel for my Home Patrol II or my BCD 436 and 536HP there hasn't been any updated since the August 31, 2016 update. Unusually the update becomes available on Mondays around 10am. I know that Monday was Labor Day but usually the update comes on the following day. It is now Friday September 9, 2016 with no update yet. When will the next update become available?

On the weekly pull and then again on the replacement pull RR went down long enough for the download to barf (503 Service Unavailable). I'm trying again, today.

The pull keeps barfing on a 503 error that occurs hours into the data pull. Starting it up again. Last time I'll be able to try before Sunday night's normal pull. Headed to the airport first thing tomorrow for a week at Tokyo HQ.

Enjoy Tokyo!

Sounds like it was a great labor day weekend followed by a labor intensive week! Damn computer problems!!!! Enjoy Tokyo! Hopefully you will have some down time to check out the sights. Perhaps the computer influenza, and barfing on a 503 error will be in remission by Sunday!

We are aware of the 503 issues and are actively looking to get a fix rolled out. It's a bug that cropped up on our back end infrastructure that has been occurring.

Last night's pull completed successfully.

Thanks for looking into this, Lindsay. I was about to contact you off list about it. I normally see a failed pull once every 6 months or so...and sometimes it is our end, sometimes it is your end. This was pretty consistent.

BCD436/536HP Updates

Uniden software updated for me yesterday morning BCD 436HP and BCD 536HP. There are so many databases I'm reasonably sure some systems have had changes. Just gotta love the way you get the updates! So easy! What a great system!!!!
